Course Description

This course is for anyone who wishes to improve their pronunciation of English. After a first diagnostic session in which each participant's strengths and weaknesses are pinpointed, we will deal with troublesome sounds in small groups (or individually, if necessary). In addition, there will be special sessions on intonation and stress and on the relationship between sound and spelling. The course is very practical. No prior knowledge of phonetics is required.

Course material

Participants will be provided with handouts during class.

Target group and admission requirements

This course is intended for highly educated adults, both students and staff members of Leiden University, as well as interested parties with no affiliation with Leiden University.

This course is intended for participants who have already obtained level B2 of the CEF. You are strongly advised  to take a placement test in order to find out which level suits your current knowledge of the English language. You can simply complete the online placement test at home. When you are in doubt, contact us: 071 - 5272332 / talencentrum@hum.leidenuniv.nl

If you wish, you may also take the test at the reception desk of the Academic Language Centre on working days between 9:00 and 15:30 o'clock. It is not necessary to make an appointment.
